ABOUT THERAPY & ABOUT ME
Everyone has their own reasons for seeking therapy, it might be something obvious like relationship problems, stress at work, bereavement or a trauma from the past. Alternatively, it could be a general sense of unease and anxiety whilst not knowing what that ‘something’ is.
Whatever the issue, I offer a calm, supportive space where reflection can take place, at a pace that suits you. My role is to accompany you to a new understanding of yourself and ultimately to create a sense of emotional well-being and change your life for the better.
Both short-term counselling can be agreed to focus on a particular issue or longer-term, open-ended psychotherapy for a wider perspective. The value in my approach is to both facilitate and honour your process, whilst respecting your expressed needs throughout the therapeutic journey.
I hold a postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy and am registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). Sessions are held either face-to-face or online, depending on individual preference.
I have over 10 years professional experience working for charities such as Mind, FreshStart Psychotherapy, The Caravan Drop-In, as well as running a private practice.
As a qualified Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist, I’m trained to access a range of therapeutic approaches such as talking therapy, dream work, and utilising methods to promote insights through creative imagination. Integrative therapy, allows me to adopt the most appropriate therapeutic approach for each individual, depending on suitability, the issues presented, and mutual agreement.
My specialist areas are in working with mental health issues – including generalised anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, low confidence, panic attacks and recovery from abuse including sexual, physical and emotional.
I cannot know why you are reading this. It may be that you are in a difficult place or find your life to be painfully stuck. Perhaps someone close to you is in trouble. If so, I am sorry; I would suggest you email or call me by way of the information on this page. I will reply as soon as I can.
I currently have online spaces throughout London, Tottenham/Edmonton and the surrounding areas.
I can also offer online and face to face meetings based in Truro, Cornwall.
